Van Gogh experience to Van Stay – as it extends until the end of the year.
The popular Van Gogh: The Immersive Experience in York St Mary’s was due to finish at the end of August.
But it has been revealed that the exhibition will continue to welcome visitors until the end of the year.
The attraction originally opened for a six month run in July 2019.
General manager, Evie Blackstock said, “We have been absolutely overwhelmed with the support from both local people and visitors to York since we opened three years ago as the UK premiere of this experience.
“We’ve had quite a number of visitors visiting us several times – it is like they come in to recharge their cultural and emotional batteries.”
The exhibition uses light and sound to animate and display over 200 of Van Gogh’s works within the nave of York St Mary’s.
His life story is told through his artworks, from his peaceful time in the French countryside, to the mental turmoil that brought his life to an end way too early.
The show lasts 35 minutes, and visitors to the experience can sit back and relax in deckchairs as the walls are transformed around them.
Since opening in York, the exhibition has been displayed across the UK and the globe, with displays in places including Leicester, London, Bristol and New York – but York remains the longest-running venue.
Tickets for Van Gogh: The Immersive Experience cost £13 for adults, £11 for concessions and £9 for children – with an additional charge of £3 per person for the optional Virtual Reality experience.
Tickets can be booked via their website here.
